No screeching halt required. I've gone back and forth and back again trying to come up with a good solution so I'm really not far into the transcription. I am relieved that you confirmed (almost) everything I've been thinking! I also realized that either way, the computer commands would end being uncontracted.
So then, do you still stand by the use of Nemeth code for the IP addresses, subnet masks, and binary representations as discussed in the post entitled "IP addresses" in this forum?
You also pointed to the section in UEBGTM about Hexadecimal numbers so I'm not certain if you are thinking the table I asked about in the post entitled "Networking manual" in this forum should not be done differently than Kyle suggested.
I really appreciate the time you've taken to help me figure this out.
